Folksonomies: composed of user-generated metadata, created by tagging pieces of digital information with their own searchable keywords

broad: third-party users assign tags to the same content, creating metadata for their bookmarks; sites aggregate this metadata, make it searchable

narrow: users tag their own content so that they can easily retrieve it and help others find it; useful for assigning metadata to unique content
